Is this normal ?
Drobo box v2
3x 2tb WD drives
2.68tb space used
1.0 tb space left
The box is at 74% capacity
The transfer speed has dropped from 25mb/s to 0.1mb/s
I would assume this is not the slow down as it reaches capacity (it is no where near 95%)
I have pulled it off the imac and put it on my laptop and the performance remains the same (both on firewire and usb)
Can anyone give me some ideas what is causing this? Is it because i transferred 2.5 tb in one go now its remapping data and is getting behind? If so how long does it take to get the performance back? At present it is unusable.
btw read performance is also very slow now 6mb/s down from 27mb/s
